Digital storytelling could be the most powerful technological tool to give a kindergarten student. It enables them to use their oral skills, which are often more advanced than their written skills. This empowers them to take control of their learning and convey their understanding and creativity.
One tool is fotobabble
This free app enables children to take a picture, record their story, reflection or idea and then share it straight to the blog via the Twitter feed. You can also embed the fotobabble directly into blog posts.
This fotobabble is recorded by a reluctant speaker. She could hear her voice and rerecord it as many times as she wanted. She got speedy feedback and could act on it.
How could digital storytelling be used in your classroom/subject area?
